dragged a chair onstage to conjure up an invisible president obama, michelle obama critiqued governor romney without mentioning his name, drawing sharp contrasts with her husband and creating a profile in negatives. >> barack's success isn't about how much money you make. it's about the difference you make in people's lives. we learned about honesty and integrity, that the truth matters, that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules. he's the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs. the issues that come across a president's desk are always the hard ones. the problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer. i have seen first-hand that being president doesn't change who you are. no, it reveals who you are. >> joining us now from charlotte, north carolina, is margaret carlson of bloomberg news. margaret, great to see you. before i get to you, i want to send a question over to our folks on set. senator bradley, someone who has in fact run for president, i want to ask you the question of michelle obama as a surrogate ha

that we fell in love with really above everything else about barack obama and about michelle obama is what they say about the american dream. here are two people from the unlikeliest of backgrounds raising themselves up, attaining huge incredible personal success and still remaining committed first and foremost to their family and their community. one moment in particular that struck me in her speech is she talked about coming from humble means, but it didn't sound like a hardship. she spoke of the joy and the pride and the hard work in that household, which i think is a powerful rebuttal to the sort of you didn't build that narrative that comes from the republicans and the idea that poor people who require government assistance are lazy, shiftless, dependent. no, there was pride and there was responsibility in that household. >> well, you know, i think it was a great speech. she looked great. she sounded great. in some senses, i would say that michelle obama is a much moral effective speaker than even her husband who is a very gifted speaker. i couldn't find her eyes on the prompter. she
arrows for fedex and take ups along with it. >> and we've got michelle barack obama delivering the big speech of the democratic national convention last night. one of the main messages, you owe your success to others, listen to this. >> we learned about gratitude and humility, that so many people had a hand in our success from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean and we were taught to value everyone's contribution and treat everyone with respect. >> the janitor, really? and that statement is a stark contrast to mitt romney's message on school success. remember this from last month? >> it's just like a kid in school, who decides, you know, i'm going to work and see if i can make the honor roll. if that kid makes the honor roll, i realize that he got to school on a bus, and the bus driver got him there, but i don't give the bus driver credit for getting the honor roll, i give the kid the credit for the honor roll. stuart: two different messages from two different campaigns. what did you think of michelle obama's speech last night? we want to know. tell u
for him to do much better than the headliner last night. first lady michelle obama who offered a personal perspective on the values that guide her husband every day in the white house. >> for barack, these issues aren't political. they are personal. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we are from or what we look like or who we love. >> if the first lady michelle obama sought to reignite the flame for the president earlier, massachusetts governor deval patrick aimed to reinvigorate the fight. challenging supporters to stand with the president against attacks on everything from his foreign policy to health care reform. >> if we want to win elections in november and keep our country moving forward, if we want to earn the privilege to lead, my message is this. it is time for democrats to grow a backbone and stand up for what we believe! >> that fiery speech raised the bar important those that followed. but it was keynote speaker san antonio mayor julian castro that to
. take a look at what happened last night when first lady michelle obama took the stage at the dnc. >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. we were so young, so in love and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down, because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. >> so in love and so in debt. if you look at some of the headlines, just really quickly, there's the daily news. she's a hit. we saw the same headlines with ann romney as well. she was a hit, too, so how did michelle do since we're on the news, and what about ann romney and the effect of ann romney? i want to bring in margaret hoover who is also the author of "american individualism." i want you to talk about exceptionalism. give me the rundown and how you think michelle obama's speech went over last night and then we'll get to ann romney as well. >> look, first lady obama was a huge hit, and, you know,
at the speeches this week, let's remember bill clinton had to follow michelle obama, which was a phenomenal speech, martin. that was as great a speech experience as you could ask for in a convention hall, and people are wondering, how can he follow that? he didn't attempt to top it. he did something different. he did a completely different thing as he so obviously would. so what i think happened was we saw michelle obama hit a home run, and then we saw bill clinton hit a home run, and nobody cares whether this home run went over the centerfield wall or the left field wall or right field. these are home runs, martin. these are just incredible performances, and i think barack obama's going to come in here tonight, and he's going to own this night. he's going to own this convention, own this group. and i really think he is now in control of the campaign the rest of the way when he leaves shar the lo. >> lawrence, the final question to you. how does the quality of speeches at this convention compare with last week in tampa. please stop yourself from laughing, lawrence. >> i actually think for the case
will be capped off by michele obama. david walker joins because he the incident last week in tampa. former u.s. general. >> we are in a 70 trillion-dollar hole. we have unfunded pensions and health care. unfunded social security, unfunded medicare. the range of other commitments and contingencies. it is over $70 trillion. neil: which party has the better plan to do that? >> it will be interesting to see how barack obama embraces simpson-bowles or that he hasn't yet, but if he does, that could be a game changer. there is one serious problem in one moderate problem. the series problem is that if you don't effectively deal with health care costs, you don't solve the problem. neil: who better than kathleen sebelius to help you. >> he is a happy beneficiary to bring happy quality health care to every senior citizen. president obama is building on that legacy. by bringing quality and secure health care to every american. obamacare is a badge of honor. because no matter who you are, what stage of life you are in, this law is a good thing. first, if you already have insurance that you like, you can
, though. michelle obama came out the first night and talked about why she and her husband have lived the american dream. we are you. we don't just feel you. we are you. bill clinton talked about why the other side cannot provide the american dream. now i think president obama will come out tonight and explain why he's the better man to get people to that dream. >> luke, i thought it was interesting last night. the number one word i heard, after the word "i," was bill clinton constantly saying "cooperation." it's a powerful argument because he's talking about an america where we all work together. i think if you're financially struggling and scared, what do you want to hear that, you know, we're all going to build it ourselves because we built it ourselves so you can too? or we're going to work together. we're going to be your partner. we're going to work together and cooperate to move america forward. but within the theme of cooperation, of course, is what happens in congress? we know that the obstruction plan started as the inauguration was going on. so if obama's re-elected, do the
of it is michele obama. the smallest component is barack obama himself and his speech. >> there's a big bill factor, is in their? >> besides michelle obama at the convention, i thought clinton was too self-indulgent, but it turned out to be like one of his state of the union addresses where the germans on that people like is when the discussion. i thought obama was flat. apparently it doesn't matter. we need to wait a week and a half to get a true sense. >> once said that we do know about his is ohio. obama, mitt romney, 50%, 40% to mitt romney. is this only logical, a state that is highly unionized. >> especially the kids come and i said this rich or poor, that the romney campaign has yet to articulate to employee working people. if the romney campaign had relied on what has been on your pages and not on wall street journal editorial pages,. >> but the 50-point plan that everybody discounted and thorough way. it was too complicated for the journalists out there. does he have it right? >> he has welded onto a five-point plan. but i think it turns out that he didn't spend enough time out of conventi
. neil: you and for study michele obama, critics of both say each of you gave better speeches and your husband. what do you think of that? >> well, i don't know if i agree. i think my husband's was terrific. it was different. i mean, we obviously are talking about different things. you want to have more fun and more interesting, you might listen to the women speak because we have an opportunity to talk about family and personal things. if you have to listen to policy which is obviously not as entertaining, you would certainly think that in both cases. neil: do you get a sense in this race, mrs. romney, it always comes down to they have it made. now, in your convention speech you mentioned, it was not always that way. a lot of people have seized on your remarks. meet the press were you said, we have not had a financial struggle in our lives as if you didn't have a struggle. what you said in your speech about, you know, everything else the, it was not that bad. what is the real deal? what was it? >> unfortunately, you know more than anyone how profit can be because people think we have a

, michelle obama's speech, president obama's speech at the convention, and that may turn out to be the most significant thing that's happened in the end of this campaign. >> go ahead. >> in 2008 there were 7 percentage points, more democrats than republicans new york the electorate. -- in the electorate. that's the largest advantage for democrats in 14 years. in 2004 it was absolutely equal. in 2010 it was absolutely equal between democrats and republicans. so the obama campaign better hope that they have an electorate that looks more like 2008 than like 2004 or 2010. >> that is absolutely critical. 2004, just to be clear, was the only time in history of modern polling that republicans equaled democrats as a share of the electorate in a presidential year, but i agree. i mean, i think the obama campaign is basically rovian in its view of the electorate in that they view it is more cost efficient to find a voter who agrees with you and might not vote than it is to persuade the kind of classic swing voter and, you know, this election, i mean, many things could tip this election, but as importa
